you should get a copy of the enrollment application and census card, maybe the testimony. the tribe might give it to you if you contact them directly. see the genealogy advocacy link in this post. other places that have it are NARA fort worth office and oklahoma historical society http://www.okhistory.org/
there are several links on this webpage that might help you.
genealogists use names, dates, locations, children and spouses to match records. if you have a common surname, you need to give more information rather thann less. if you post about women, it is helpful to include the maiden name and the married name and designate which one is the maiden name.
first of all, heritage and tribal enrollment are two different things. many times natives didn’t apply for enrollment because 1) they didn’t qualify, 2) they were philosophically opposed to enrollment, 3) they didn’t have documentation, or 4) they were mississippi choctaw and their ancestor had accepted land or benefits in lieu of tribal enrollment.
the dawes roll was taken 1896-1906, so you should trace your ancestors down to that time period. mostly, they had to be living in oklahoma by that time and agree to live there permanently.
if the name is common, you may find too many possible records.
the tribe has an excellent information to help you. it is found under genealogy advocacy.
mississippi choctaw and choctaw tribe explained here:
i have collected many resources over the years. if you want to write to me, firstname.lastname@example.org and request the choctaw resourcce list, i will be glad to send it to you.
i am just a volunteer that wants to empower people to learn how to do genealogy.
